Reviewed August 2, 2012

Always a great time at Anvil Campground. The Jump Family and their Staff are always willing to go an extra mile to help you with any questions you may have - whether it be about the campground and/or Williamsburg area. We come back every 2 years as we have family in the area and each time Anvil has made another improvement. Keep up the great work. Thank you for making our stay each time a comfortable and enjoyable one.

Anvil Campground may be small and near a rail road track however, a great location in the midst of Willimasburg shopping, restaurants and attractions!!! LOVE IT!! It is a safe and great place to stay if you like the nearby convinience of shopping, eating and visiting all of Williamsburg attractions. Always clean place and very helpfull management staff. Trains couldn't be heard for days since we were there. If they passed at night, I didn't hear them because of my loud noise maker machine...:)

Every time we come to Williamsburg we stay at Anvil campground. That would be about 15 times. We like it because it is so close to everything. The staff is helpful and friendly. The facilities are great. And love the free internet. After the first night, you do not notice the trains. We keep coming back!!

The fact that the bus stops at the park and will take you to everything to see and do in the area is magnificent. It is inexpensive and Sooo much better than trying to drive and park at the attractions. The sites are large and shady. The pool and bathhouse are kept clean and the staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful. We have been returning there for three years now, I only wish we had found it sooner.

Anvil campground is our pick of places to camp in Williamsburg. Location, location, location!!! The facilities are great too. Sure, there are a couple of coal trains that rumble thru during the night, but they are a minor annoyance and after the first one you don't even pay them any mind. The people and service are great too!

We stayed at Anvil in 2010 and 2011 in October. The amenities are as described, the area is clean, the staff is helpful and cheerful. Yes, there is a train. NO, it was not all that bothersome. In fact,both my husband and I slept very well every night. I was injured the first trip and the staff was superb in their help. We had to leave early and they cheerfully refunded our money. The location is second to none. No car? No problem - the bus stops at the campground! Need info? they have it! Need tickets? They sell them. I would highly recommend Anvil to anyone visiting the Williamsburg area. i would definitely stay there again. We camped in a motorhome.
